This product allows students to discover the different factors and product pairs. For example, in the equation 5 x 2 = 10, there are 5 groups with 2 items in each group. There are 10 total items. In the equation 2 x 5 = 10, there are 2 groups with 5 items in each group. The pictures will look different, but the answer is still the same—10 items! In multiplication, the order of the factors does not matter—the answer is still the same! Students will be challenged to cut apart 27 squares and match the factor equations and products into the same square on a sheet of construction paper. Students then can make the different drawings for each pair of factors.
